hey,

im looking to advance onto a new board and i was wondering if anybody would be able to make any recommendations for me. I currently have a bic techno and sails are 5.4 and a 5.8. Conditions i sail in are mostly flat water with medium winds, a bit of chop. I weigh about 160 pounds and am 6 foot tall. Though i can go down to the ocean and sail their eventually. I can gybe, tack, am using a harness. Waterstarts im still working on, so something that i could uphaul if needed would be nice. Any recomendations would be appreciated.

Thanks Pat

Hi Pat,
which size of the Bic Techno do you use? I would suggest to go for a Futura board, perhaps 122 or 133.
You could use bigger sizes, when you improve your skills, like a 7 to 7,5.
